Blue Light Card has revealed that its 10% discount at Asda is back.

The discount will be available to use from Friday, May 20 and it can be used to save on groceries as well as George clothing and optical items too.

Members may be asked for an additional form of ID at the checkout when claiming the discount to ensure they are eligible to benefit from it.

Hayley Tatum, Asda’s Chief People and Corporate Affairs Officer said: “Family budgets are under huge pressure right now – with our Income Tracker showing household incomes down by £16 per week in March and set to fall further.

"Bringing back the Blue Light discount and removing the qualifying period for our own colleague discount are additional ways we can support our customers and colleagues, alongside our ongoing efforts to reduce prices and invest in our colleague pay.”

The discount will run until further notice across all UK Asda stores.

Tom Dalby, CEO at Blue Light Card, said: “We are really proud to be working with ASDA. With the cost of living on the rise, I hope this exclusive 10% discount helps families and individuals across the UK on everything from the big food shop to new school clothes.

"Asda has always done so much to show its appreciation to NHS staff and other frontline workers, and this partnership will support millions of blue light workers in the country.”
